    Deathday's (sold-out cassette) debut is now available on wax, and limited to 500 copies. Grey vinyl with black speckles, black inner-sleeve, 12" double-sided insert, and download. Orders from Sweating Tapes also come with a limited edition patch & button (only 50 of each!), exclusive to this release.

    "Constructed from the aggressive textures of early industrial music, the ambience of cold wave, and the dynamic energy of post-punk; Deathday blends dark and often esoteric images with sparse, primal analog sounds.

    In 2009, the trio began to work on what would become their debut album amidst the summer heat, immersing themselves in isolation, dark iconography, occultism, and American violence. To capture the aesthetics of the subject matter musically, the band exercised heavy use of tape saturation and manipulation, recording on everything from reel-to-reels to boomboxes. Cascading through a plethora of tape mediums and analog devices intentionally gave the recordings a sense of urgency and decay."

about

Deathday is built around brothers Alex and Giovanni Guillén. Constructed from the aggressive textures of early industrial music, the ambience of cold wave and shoegaze, and the carnal energy of post-punk, Deathday was originally devised as a live duo accompanied by vintage drum machine. As their sound progressed, Joevanie Lopez was added to provide live drums and pads, and expand the outfit’s execution, and Jeramy Graham joined on to carry out live electric bass and synth bass duties.

Deathday's self-titled debut conjures images of dark catharsis, taking cues from American violence, occultism, isolation, and sterility. Having immersed themselves in this dark iconography, the album articulates a unique and personal perspective of our collective past. The dread of these events lies like a fog over the album, available March 6, 2012 on limited edition Sweating Tapes cassette, and on vinyl in April 2013 through Sweating Tapes / desire (EU).
